Sugar (ding ding ding, ding ding) Awww Honey Honey

Honey in coffee is not the same!

First thought: Bleck!
Second thought: Maybe, ugh! Eww.
Third thought: Maybe I can get used to plain black coffee.

Sugar is my nemesis. Don't get me wrong, I am not a sweets-type. I don't go for the baked goods and candy as much as the chips and salsa. If I never had a cookie again I would be alright.

But I like sugar in my coffee and iced tea. I like sugar on my grapefruit and cereal. I like adding a tablespoon to my pot of tomato or meat sauce and a dash in my chili. I like these almond crescent Christmas cookies my mom makes and rolls in superfine sugar and the apple crumb cake she makes in the fall (the latter are once in a while, but in excess when they are around). White sugar, not brown, totally processed into granulated nirvana.

Maybe that is too far. I have tried to get into the Purevia and Truvia and Stevia and Splenda bandwagons. I blanch at the nastiness of the first two, the off-taste of the third and the downright processed headach…

Good Morning Juicers

Over the weekend I made that all-to-familiar trip to the Farmers Market and stocked up on juiceables, minus a watermelon (which rang up as $9.80 @ .50 a pound!).  The whole cart cost me about $22.50 and included everything from Apples to Zucchini.  I am lucky to live in a place where this market is permanent and open year-round, and it saves me so much over the Supermarket (except for that watermelon that I got for $5.99) and 3x for Whole Foods.

I am rebooting. Again.

I found myself craving my morning and lunch juice rituals, so I jumped in again. Tis the season!  Juicing/Vegging when all the the produce is in season? Good for body and wallet! For breakfast, the lovely shade of pink helps pick me up on this Monday morning; lunch looks like liquid chlorophyll kale-zucchini-apple-ginger-lemon. Dinner will be salad, grilled veggies, we'll see.

In other news, I just took out all my summer clothes from last year and am glad my shorts all fit. I thought for sure that the winter baking s…

The Universe is Wise

I get a note from "The Universe" everyday. It used to be I would have to find it through meditation or that AhHa moment of realization, more often than not it would come to me while laying in bed at night replaying the events of the day and thinking about how I want tomorrow to be even better. Some greater part of the Universe speaking to me in the twilight moments of the day -- Om ॐ  and all that.

Now it comes by email. (I love technology)

OK, well, Mike Dooley, author of Notes from the Universe and New Thought guru, actually sends the emails to me, and about 30,000 other people who have signed up for the notes from his site  They are pre-measured doses of good thought in the morning, and after a while of getting them, this one came in last week and it resonated with my life and this blog:

How adventurous would life be, Lynette, if you were "challenge free"? If you had the perfect body, perfect self-esteem, everyone adored you, and you won the lottery e…
